The upcoming edition of Dubai HeliShow, the biennial international helicopter technology and operations exhibition, will be held from January 19 to 21, at the state-of-the-art Emirates Flight Training Academy in Dubai South, said the event organisers Domus Group.
A key exhibition dedicated to the helicopter industry, Dubai HeliShow is taking place in partnership with Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Dubai Airports and Dubai South.
The Emirates Flight Training Academy is one of the advanced flight training academies in the world established to train world-class pilots. The institution will deploy all its latest technologies and lend its top-notch multifunction facilities to support the safe and successful hosting of the event.
Domus Group had moved the exhibition to 2021 from its original schedule set in November this year to allow for smooth transition and implementation of changes, as well as give the global participants more time to prepare for the event.
"Hosting the Dubai HeliShow is an opportunity for the Emirates Flight Training Academy to globally showcase our world-class infrastructure and capabilities to train aspiring airline pilots, as well as display our capacity to support initiatives in the UAE that are geared towards advancing the aviation industry as a whole," remarked Captain Abdulla Al Hammadi, Vice President, Emirates Flight Training Academy.
"We look forward to working closely with the Domus Group’s team on the programme and delivering on the blueprint for success," he stated.
To be co-located with the UAV/Drone and Military & Homeland Security Show, the 8th edition of Dubai HeliShow will feature a series of in-depth technical sessions to shed light on major opportunities and key challenges that are redefining and transforming the global helicopter industry today.
Leading companies from the rotorcraft, UAV/drone, and defense industries from around the world are set to take part at the event.
Highlighting topics ranging from technological advancements to drones and public safety to the role of rotorcrafts in homeland security, the upcoming biennial exhibition will convene during its technical sessions some of the world’s renowned experts in the field to lead the high-level exchange of knowledge and experiences.
The main areas of discussion will include modern helicopters and air taxis; the futuristic vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) technologies; the future maintenance and repair organizations (MROs) in the region; and updates on aerodrome and heliport regulations, to cite a few.
The event will also emphasize the advancements in the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)/drone sector as a new addition to its exhibition and conference platform.
Domus Group pointed out that each technical session throughout the three-day event would include comprehensive presentations and lectures, as well as moderated public forums to allow the attendees to directly ask questions to the lecturers and speakers.
The show will also enable networking opportunities among participants to help facilitate new partnerships and create new leads.
Mohammed Bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (Dubai South) CEO Tahnoon Saif said:
"We are living in an unprecedented time, and as is the case with other sectors, the helicopter industry is facing new challenges as well."
"However, fresh opportunities have emerged, motivating us to seek new and innovative ways to optimise various areas that would allow us to move the industry forward. Choosing the Emirates Flight Training Academy as the new venue for Dubai HeliShow in 2021 reflects this commitment and enables the exhibition to continuously serve as an ideal platform for stakeholders across the globe to explore expansion prospects and share best industry practices," he added.
Domus Group Managing Director Ahmad Abulhoul said:
"This development was the latest change to be made concerning the show in light of the new direction and strategy that we are undertaking to maintain the exhibition’s global reach and influence, as well as respond to the industry’s current needs."
"Besides its new venue, for the first time in the history of Dubai HeliShow, it will also be staged under the new hybrid format -- combining both physical and 3D virtual platforms to provide its international audience with a convenient, contemporary and flexible way to effectively engage with the world markets," he stated.
"It is also the first time that such an exhibition structure will be implemented across the Middle East. As the show’s new home, the Emirates Flight Training Academy is well-equipped to support this innovative set-up and ensure its implementation without encountering any major issue," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
